Thank you:)
Beautiful shot!
Thanks:)
*gazes dreamily*

I have *no* idea how to take night/sky pictures. Time to learn...

The moon's not all that hard; mostly a big enough lens and a tripod - I've yet to work out stars *g*
Very nice photo! What lens/aperture/etc settings did you use? I'm still not very good at moonshots...
Since the photo is from 2006, I'll say hurray for file metadata:

Taken with my old Minolta.
f/5.6
1/4000 sec.
ISO-3200
focal length: 300 mm

and of course a tripod, and I would guess the night program setting (which chose all the details above).
I love how the file metadata is automatically saved. :)

I've had trouble capturing a full moon, so I'm going to keep your settings in mind as a starting point and see if I can come up with something less... white-blobbish. I did manage a pretty good shot of a half-moon once:



using:
f/6.3
1/80 sec
ISO-100
250mm (using a 55-250mm zoom)

But trying to get that same level of detail with a full moon has eluded me. Your info should help!
That's a nice one as well. Mine is pretty grainy at full size, so ISO-3200 is probably too much.
That is a beautifully detailed shot. I tried to get a pic of supermoon the other night, but the light was so intense it didn't turn out well, for a number of reasons.
Thank you - we only got clouds with the supermoon:|
It's a lovely picture - I tell myself that one day I'll manage a good picture of the moon - but I haven't yet!
Keep trying *g* - oh, and icon love
It may be standard but it is what I would first think about with this prompt. And it's a great shot. I have many times tried to take pics of the moon but I don't think I have a good enough camera.
:)The main thing I think you need is a tripod and a way to not overexpose (i.e. either night setting or manual control)
But a very lovely photo! I think the moon is one of the hardest things to photograph and have wasted many hours trying to get a shot a good as this one. (admires)
*thanks*

I do have quite a few overexposed blobs as well...
